Remember when you could setup your glider in five minutes or less?
My newest t-shirt design. VIKING – In the way olden days, sometime between pterodactyls and Otto Lilienthal, there was a time when the sky was ruled by flying Norsemen wielding battle axes and drinking huge quantities of ale, and telling stories about flying across the oceans to conquer distant lands.
But then came the day, a jealous Odin took revenge and smited away the fair skies, thermals, and other means of Viking recreation. Over time, they had forgotten the ancient ways, and missing the recreational activities that made them so famous, designed and built lumbering sailing ships and were forced to sail in dangerous waters to those distant lands.
Now, if you are lucky, you can find a small population of descendants reliving the ancient ways, flying hang gliders across Scandinavian islands, in search of more Viking recreation. The symbols below the glider are the Rune Long Branch symbols for “Viking”.
Floki would be proud.
You can find the shirt at my store.
The Cloudbase Foundation
One of my favorite charities is the Cloudbase Foundation. The Cloudbase Foundation is a non-profit organization of hang glider and paraglider pilots formed to assist children in the United States and around the world where ever we fly. My latest t-shirt design helps support those efforts. This design was done for the Rainbow Room in Big Spring, Texas along with the 2018 Big Spring Nationals, a big hang gliding event. See the Oz Report for more information. If you are unable to attend the event to get a shirt, you can purchase a copy from my store. Thanks!
